January Public Shows
Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:30 p.m.
Winter Stargazing highlights the stars and constellations of winter in this month's Evening Showings. You and your family will learn to find your way around the winter, night sky using the stars as guides. You will also see that there are more than just stars to observe in our evening skies.
Saturdays at 10 a.m.
Our Children’s Matinee this month is Legends of the Night Sky: Orion. This animated show tells the ancient Greek and Roman story of Orion, the Hunter. You and your children will learn how Orion fell in love with the goddess of the Moon, Diana and see his epic battle with Scorpius, the Scorpion.
Saturdays at 2 p.m.
SpacePark360 returns to the planetarium for our Saturday Matinee. This action-packed show takes you on nine different, amusement park rides set on different locations around the solar system. Ride the "Black Hole Coaster" through the ice geysers of Neptune’s moon, Triton. Experience "Vertigo" in the clouds of Jupiter, and tumble in the "Tumbler" on Earth.
Doors open 15 minutes before the scheduled showtime. Due to the unusual lighting conditions in the planetarium, no one is allowed to enter once the show has started. Please come early.
Our planetarium has forty-two, theater-style seats for a comfortable viewing experience. Its digital, star projector creates an immersive portal on our universe. With it, we will show you, your family or your students more than just the stars. We will travel to the planets, back in time and beneath the ocean's surface.
Located just 20 miles west of New Orleans, Louisiana on US 90, the Planetarium is attached to the West Regional branch of the
St. Charles Parish Library at 105 Lakewood Dr. in Luling.
We proudly offer FREE public shows every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
